I could not accept people cursing me...Do you think that cursing is very healthy in the society?Life is short,so why must you curse people to express your anger?

Cursing is fine, but it depends on who is saying it. If a small boy shouts out F***, u can't blame him! He doesn't know the meaning of the word. Perhaps he just found it amusing that papa used it so often, he tried it too.

So cursing is ultimately very wrong if you're a father, a brother, a sister or an elderly to someone. If you are someone that your youngers respect, emulate and see as their role model, Don't curse in front of them. (however, if u really do want to curse, tell them the meaning of it, which i bet u wouldn't want too HAHA)

One more thing, cursing too often like it's your mother tongue may give off a vibe that you are quick-tempered, or that you are not the serious kinda person. So if you wanna leave a good lasting impression on others, Don't curse out loud too often. Why can't u just curse in your mind if you're so mad? Sometimes things are better left unsaid. U can avoid offending others.

Overall, it's ok to curse. but be mindful of what your intentions are when u say vulgar words.

I am indifferent towards cursing. Some people view curse words as such terrible things, but personally, I don't see the difference between these few words and all the others in the dictionary. Come on, they're all words.

It depends on the setting and the context. If you are in an army it's simply impossible not to curse. If you play game with people in cyber cafe, cursing nonstop in there doesn't mean you are the most indecent person that has ever walked the earth. However, if you are driving a family friend and you curse loudly when a car cut you in queue, like it or not it would reflect poorly on your character.

They may be words, but the tongue is sharper than the sword.

I can't control myself from uttering a few curse words sometimes when things don't go as I planned, but I avoid cursing anything worse than sh*t or d*mn. Even so I never direct my curse towards someone.

Oh yeah, I'd also like to add... Why are some swear words so excessively used these days (especially f*ck) that people use them like it's normal to say them in any conversation? What's so trendy about being vulgar?

For me,its neither right nor wrong.Its more to appropriate or inappropriate..I believe that its not the words one using matters,but the way the words are being used.But still,using profanity (especially the F word) excessively,or out of context,only makes one to look stupid.

Cursing is an art. Do it wrong, you will look stupid. Do it right, you become a legend.

I think it depends on your intent. I say 'fcuk!' when something goes wrong, and I don't see why anyone nearby should feel offended. If I say 'fcuk you!' then the manner in which I said it should count. If I look like I really meant it then yea, maybe it is rude. But if I say it harmlessly, almost with a smile on my face, then I get annoyed if people take offence lol.

As for normal sentences, I couldn't imagine not adding a 'fcking' before every adjective for emphasis. It's a habit, that's all. =D

And yes, I know it may seem shocking, coming from a girl. haha but I grew up with guys!

I just generally dislike cursing. It sounds so crude, as if you aren't civilised. Surely the English language has a vast enough vocabulary for people to choose words from, apart from swear words.

Voted for: Only when I'm really pissed off

Even though that's my choice but I don't want to curse out loud in front of people, if I manage it that is. There were a couple of incidents where I involuntarily cursed out loud when people's around. And then quickly regretted it and hoped that nobody noticed it.
Still, I curse when nobody's around or just fume inside silently.

Somehow I agree with surayahamdan haha. It's true. If you just blindly throw profanity here and there, you look like an idiot imo. That's what I'm trying to avoid. I feel uncomfortable when people say "s***" even though the situation isn't that all bad and if I feel uncomfortable, I don't want other people to feel the same way, hence I treat them the way I hope people around me would treat me. But then again, people can't help to utter them and I don't blame them.
I'm trying to get use to hearing the cursing words and still can't. It's really is a wonder why my siblings and I have never cursed out loud considering our father often curse under his breath during driving (_ _||)
